Today will mark the third and final day of the $10,000 Pot Limit Hold’em Event#17 and the $2,500 Razz Event #18. Both fields are stacked with well known pros but all eyes will be on Phil. Of course, we are talking about two different Phils. Ivey has managed to make his way down to the final 17 i the pot limit event. Sitting in 11th place with his edge on the field, he stands a good chance to make his second final table in a row. In fact, he missed the first few levels of this event because he was finishing 7th in the seven card stud event. If he does manage to pull it off, this will be his first bracelet in a hold’em event and he will get a nice $445k payday to boot.
The other Phil, Hellmuth, will also be eyeing a bracelet and a 182k payday today. He has set himself up nicely moving into day 3 of the razz event, sitting in 3rd of the remaining 18 runners. Ironically, this would be his first bracelet in a non-hold’em event. Lets just keep our fingers crossed that these two will be out to expand their horizons today. We will keep you posted in the case of any breaking news in these events, and all of the other exciting stories from the 2012 World Series of Poker.
